Rap mogul P.Diddy and his on/off singer/model girlfriend Cassie have ‘split up following an explosive row which sparked a visit from police’.
The couple – who have been in an on-off relationship since 2007 – reportedly started arguing in a car in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon after the singer, 29, said she wanted to call time on their romance.
According to TMZ, Diddy, 46, to grabbed Cassie’s phone and start scrolling through it as they were being driven home. Diddy then jumped out of the vehicle with the phone as a shocked Cassie stayed in the car with their driver.
Diddy eventually returned to their shared Los Angeles home and towed away two cars parked outside. Meanwhile, Cassie had told her mother what had happened before her Bad Boy records founder beau got back to their house, it was then her mom called the police. Officers visited but left when Cassie explained that she had got the phone back, though the cops still wrote up a domestic incident report.
This isn’t the first time the couple have split as Cassie appeared to have dumped the ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ hitmaker, who has five children from past relationships. In December amid reports he had been ‘pictured with a woman at a number of events,’ Cassie posted and deleted an Instagram post which read: ‘How I sleep knowing that I’m single and no one is cheating on me.’
Cassie and Diddy were then pictured again together, looking seemingly happy with both taking to Instagram to post snaps together. However, Diddy previously admitted Cassie had ‘some questions’ after he was spotted chatting to his former girlfriend Jennifer Lopez at the 2015 American Music Awards last November.
Diddy insisted that himself and Jennifer were simply having a friendly catch up and the ‘On the Floor’ singer’s boyfriend Casper Smart was also present. He said: ‘My woman at the end of the day, you know, she ain’t have a problem with it. She had some questions. She had some questions.’
Diddy continued: ‘But nah, nah, you know, Casper was there. Me and Jennifer … people gonna be friends, man. People gonna grow, and, you know, any of my exes, they smile, and they’re happy to see me, you know what I’m saying? And that’s all that was about. And, you know, I answered the question.’
Diddy and Jennifer, 46, dated from 1999 to 2001 and she has since claimed that their split was due to his infidelity. Jennifer said of their relationship: ‘I never caught him, but I just knew. He’d say he was going to a club for a couple of hours and then never come back that night. It was the first time I was with someone who wasn’t faithful. I was in this relationship with Puff where I was totally crying, crazy and going nuts. It really took my whole life in a tailspin.’
Diddy has previously dated stylist Kim Porter in 1994, then began his relationship with Jennifer Lopez, they then had an on/off relationship until 2007, and then started dating singer Cassie.
Diddy and Kim Porter share four children together, Quincy, 24, (whose real father is producer Al B. Sure), Christian, 18, and twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie, 9. Diddy also has another daughter Chance who was born to a woman named Sarah Chapman five months prior to when his twins were born.
